    I was reading something from Oliver Sacks the other day ‘I went across the road, as I often did, for a cup of coffee and a sandwich. As I was stirring the coffee it suddenly turned green, then purple. I looked up, startled, and saw a huge proboscidean head, like an elephant seal. Panic seized me; I slammed a five-dollar note on the table and ran across the road to a bus on the other side. But all the passengers on the bus seemed to have smooth white heads like giant eggs, with huge glittering eyes like the faceted compound eyes of insects—their eyes seemed to move in sudden jerks, which increased the feeling of their fearfulness and alienness’.

    Made me wonder whether ‘I am the walrus’ was inspired at least in part by this?

    Thanks for the wonderful animation Greg, hadn’t seen it before; means a lot x
